Greetings on opening of 6th St Petersburg International Labour Forum

March 17, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to the participants, organisers and guests of the 6th St Petersburg International Labour Forum.

The message reads, in part:

“Your forum, which traditionally brings together leading scientists and representatives of government agencies, and business and expert communities in the Northern capital, is rightfully considered an authoritative platform for discussing key aspects of the formation of a modern labour market and the development of human capital. It is important that the participants focus on significant issues like updating the quality of the professional training system, increasing labour productivity, the widespread introduction of digital technologies and research results, regulating labour migration, and supporting employment. Let me emphasise that the successful solution of these ambitious and time-required tasks is today, given the external challenges, a priority for strengthening the economic capacity of the regions and the country as a whole, improving the social sphere, and improving the quality of life for the people.

I am certain that the forum will be held at a high level, and that its participants will exchange experience and best practices.”
